Today I received a fateful call that will change my life forever: I am now employed as a server at a local burger joint. This place is no McDonald’s either… consider it a glorified Steak ‘N Shake. The whole process was about as much as I expected… dress up, drop off application, wait anxiously for a call back, receive a call for an interview, do a little dance, dress up again (but never in the same outfit), show up 20 minutes early for the interview, smile through the answers you nail, smile even harder through the ones you don’t, wait even more anxiously for the final call, get the job, and then do a really big dance. I was not expecting to receive such good news today, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect (my training starts the weekend after my last day of summer classes!). I must admit, however, this list item gives me mixed feelings. In no time I’ll be rolling in the dough, yet I’ll be spending Friday nights rolling in the grease. I’m going to experience a new taste of independence, all while choking down a new set of rules. Although this accomplishment by no means marks the end of my childhood, it is a definite step towards being a “grown-up.” My only hope is that this is an experience that I can have fun with. Cheers to the future.
Love & Summer,
P.S. UPDATE: Although I contacted the winner of the GirlProps.com sunglasses giveaway, I did not receive a response within 72 hours. This means that I have picked another winner, who will be contacted first thing tomorrow via e-mail. Check your inbox tomorrow morning and good luck! Thanks again to all who entered!
